Girling clutch cylinder thread size


(Benny) #1

The pipe from my slave cylinder to the new master no matter how I try will not
screw on the old one does. Maybe something is wrong with the thread.Does
anyone know the thread size?
thanks

Inlet port = 7/16NF; outlet port = 3/8NF.

Use make sure the tube nut isn’t flared out from previous tightening.

Thank-you I’ll check threads for problems.

Its the plain area prior to the threads that gets swollen from the compressive forces not the threads per se.


(Benny) #6

So file down the plain area a bit?


(Robin O'Connor) #7

Yes if it looks a bit swollen.

time and work. Thank-you very much

The brake master cylinder came with 2 banjo fittings as you know. I was able to
use the pipe fitting from my old cylinder.

Same here; but my '66 FHC new Clutch. BM, and Servo all have old rusty fittings; I can’t find anyone in UK who sells these fittings. I thought of adapting to -AN fittings but DOT does not approve of non racing brake lines.
